The heart takes a hit when any aspect of life falls low! Emotional, physical, social, mental – it takes it all. The 21st century has made heartbreaks and heart diseases seem not a big deal, as they have made it to the list of populars. Still, the fear of getting one is never easy. Though escaping a heart failure is not always in you; adapting certain norms to routine, wards off that possibility. Following are a few norms that are not new, but need a brush-up.
1. Got Needless Fat? Sweat It Out
If a workout is not your piece of cake; you should double-check before having a piece of cake! Even though millions have come after preaching exercise; the gyms are not fully loaded yet. Mind you, exercise matters to having a healthy heart. So, rather than limiting your moves; do at least limited moves to ace your fit check.
2. Deload Worries
Worry-free life is anybody’s dream, but it is never possible to spot one who worries not! Stressing on things that are higher than your reach, tires you as a whole. Keep a stress check and know that stressing can never solve it for you. So, when you feel the weight; seek help and save your heart.
3. Smoking Does No Good
Chain smoker or Occasional smoker; no big difference, smoke is smoke, right? Smoking does not just make you a sufferer; it makes you a suffering creator. Seconding to all the ill effects it causes, it increases your risk of falling sick with a heart problem. Is not it a high time you quit?
4. Tone Down Alcohol
While claims suggest alcohol keeps your heart fit, excess of anything is never a good thing! So, keep it down and remember not to overdo it. One or two drinks can be your thing; not more than that.
5. A Clean Diet Never Fails You
Pleasing your taste bud is fine, but pleasing your body is a must. A clean diet puts you on good terms with your body. Doing an entrance check by weighing out what it could do to you before letting in, paves your way towards having a healthy heart.
6. Peaceful Sleep; Happy Heart
One thing that we have lost over the years is sufficient sleeping. It is not just one thing that stands in our way of sleeping fine; messed up schedules, deadlines, paying bills, heartbreaks – one or the other compromises our sleep at a point. Fighting these storms towards getting an interruption-free sleep is our heart’s holy grail.
7. When Body Demands, Book a Consult
Having a risk of getting heart disease scares us more than having one! It keeps haunting on and off. So, rather than pondering over and over; get it checked. If diagnosed, never put off, get treated as and when you know.
These teeny tiny changes can make yourself and your heart happy and healthy. So, what are you waiting for? It is time to start ticking each of the lists.
